I teach IGCSE History and IB History and consequently have a current 'expertise' in modern history.

My main areas of interest are Lenin and the Bolsheviks 1903-1924; the Soviet Education System; and the USSR under Brezhnev.
The first of these areas is my current A2 teaching commitment.
The second and third are more personal interests since I visited the USSR a number of times from the 1960s to the 1980s. My BA is in History, my MA in Comparative Education – hence the Soviet Education System.
I have quite a number of slide photographs of Moscow and Leningrad from these visits with two highlights: a large collection of photos of Soviet classrooms in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s and a small one of the state funeral of Mikhail Suslov, the chief ideologue of the 1970s.
Hope the above helps to explain my interests.

I have a PhD in History (The early years of the NHS), completed in 1996.
My interest in the Russian Revolution and the years that followed stem largely from an interest in politics. Having researched it for political purposes, I have since used it in teaching IB and GCSE Modern World.

I am a student at International school of Toulouse, and I have also studied in Russia and the United States. Being a native Russian, I am naturally very interested in Russian history and especially Stalin's Russia which I have been researching recently. (If anyone would be interested I have recently conducted interviews in Russia focusing on WWII and nostalgia phenomenon)
My experience and expertise does not match that of the panel already formed, but if I can be of any help I would be most pleased to do so. Any questions about Russian resources that need translation are also more than welcomed.

It seems more like a history of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. What I was hoping for was something about the Vikings (while trading with Baghdad down the Volga (and settling North America)) 'discovering' the people they called the Rus (the Land of the Rus) and before and after till the end of the Tzars and their resurrection (I suggest the Counter-Revolution (led by Stalin hiding Lenins (dying) last written statement to the Supreme Soviet (that warned it against Stalin and promoted Trotsky (Stalins last elimination of the old Bolchies) started about 1923 and was completed when the wall went down)) in todays Russian Federation.
